New York: Pro-Khalistan groups have held a demonstration outside the UN headquarters in New York calling on the world body to support a referendum for self-determination.
A delegation of Sikh activists also submitted to UN officials a report 'A Case For Punjab Referendum 2020 — Sikhs Right to Self-Determination — Why and How?'.
The report by advocacy group Sikhs for Justice (SFJ), addressed to Secretary General Antonio Guterres, urged the UN to support the demand of Sikhs for holding a referendum in Punjab for "realisation of their right to self-determination".
Members of Sikh rights groups and North American Gurudwara committees urged the United Nations to support the "Punjab Independence Referendum" for a separate Sikh homeland of Khalistan.
